It’s not too early to be thinking about Halloween. The crisp cool air has finally announced autumn has arrived. Here are some ideas of some fun cocktails to serve at your Halloween party. The recipes are courtesy of Martin Miller’s Gin. Masks optional.
Bloody Scream Cocktail
Also known as a Red Snapper, this is a variation of a Bloody Mary made with gin. But on Halloween night, it’s a Bloody Scream!
Tonight marks a special Name Night at The Front Porch. We have dedicated it to two names that seem normal enough: Abby and Tom. But there’s a reason both names appear on our calendar on the same day. Check out Abby and Tom’s story below:
“In April, I came in for my birthday with a large group of friends. After being there for a while, I saw the man of my dreams! I wanted to talk to him, but it was loud, crowded and my friends were trying to move on to the next bar. Before I left, I had to make sure I gave this man my number but didn’t have any paper, so I took the only thing I had, a dollar bill, and put my name and number on it. I ran over to give it to him while saying ‘Don’t waste this,’ and left. I later thought I would never hear back from him and wished I had been able to talk to him. To my surprise, 3 days later, he called me and we went on our first date a couple days later. We have been dating ever since and neither of us have ever been happier.
The reason I am telling you this story is in hopes that it inspires you all to put our names (Abby and Tom) on the same night so that we can celebrate together in the place that we we met. I think our story is fun so I hope you do too!”

Follow Einstein’s advice:
1. Visit the Front Porch often.
2. Write your name on our chalkboard inside the bar.
3. Get to know the bartenders.
We could be slightly biased, but we think the best place to hang out with your friends and get a few drinks on a Friday night in Denver is The Front Porch. A laid back atmosphere, friendly bartenders, comfy couches, and free drinks if it’s your Name Night all contribute to the overall awesomeness of one of downtown’s favorite bars/lounges. See you tonight!
This has to be one of the best liquor commercials since Heineken’s The Date. It’s for Captain Morgan’s new darker, bolder spiced rum. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below.
This is where it all goes down. The bar at the Front Porch. Wednesday is Flip Night, where you flip a coin to see if your drink is free. Take a risk, and you might get lucky. See you tonight!
The Front Porch is always packed on Wednesdays. Why? Because we have Flip Night! Order a drink – or a whole round for your friends – we flip a coin, and if you guess the coin toss correctly your drink or round is free!! It doesn’t get much better than that. Come flirt with Lady Luck along with a bunch of Denver’s hottest guys and girls out on a Wednesday night just looking for a little fun to get over the mid-week hump. See you tonight at The Front Porch for Flip Night!
A lot of you have been asking, “Why isn’t MY name on your calendar this month?” While we do our best to accommodate special requests that come through our Facebook page, the BEST way to get your name on our calendar is to be a loyal customer of the The Front Porch.
Visit us often. Get to know the bartenders. Write your name on our chalkboard inside the bar. The people we see the most often and who show they love us will be the ones most likely to get their names remembered at calendar writing time. It’s not rocket science.
Also, if your name does not appear on our calendar, you still get a chance to drink for free EVERY Wednesday night during Flip Night.
Thank you all for your love and support. We have a blast being one of our favorite Denver bars!!
Happy Hump Day! Yes, Denver, it’s Wednesday and that means it’s Flip Night at The Front Porch. What is Flip Night you ask? The concept is simple: Order a drink – or many drinks. Guess correctly and your drinks are free! Every Wednesday at the Front Porch.
What’s better than happy hour? HAPPY HOURS. As in, all night. If you find your name on our calendar, you get to drink for free all night at Front Porch. That’s right, from 5 pm to 2 am, you are a star. March calendar below:

At The Front Porch on 15th Street in downtown Denver, our Name Night calendar is our claim to fame. Published monthly, each day of the week (except Wednesday) features various first names. The lucky individual to have his or her name selected for the designated date gets to drink for free all night. There are no catches. Just free alcohol.
Here are a few tips on how to make the most of this golden opportunity at one of Denver’s hottest bars:
1. Get on the calendar
This, of course, is the first step. If you want to get your name on our calendar, come in and visit us often during the month prior to the next calendar’s publish date (for example, come in March if you want a chance to be on April’s calendar). Write your name on the chalkboard in the bar. Get to know the bartenders. Become our friend and we will become yours.
2. Tell your friends
Once you find out your name is on our calendar, share the good news with all your friends, and invite them to join you. Chances are one of your friends shares your name night. (If not, try not to gloat too much.)
3. Designate a driver
Let’s not mince words. You’re going to drink. A lot. Plan ahead and pick a designated driver. Or put the number to a taxi in your phone ahead of time.
4. Bring your ID
Not only do you need your ID to get in the door (The Front Porch is a 21+ only establishment), you will need it at the bar to prove you are who you say you are. No ID with your name on it, no free drinks.
5. Patch up
Since you know you will be drinking a lot, it might be wise to invest in some Zaca patches before heading out. Haven’t heard of Zaca patches? You need to. They are recovery (a.k.a. “hangover”) patches that you put on before you start drinking and are infused with vitamins and minerals to counteract the dehydrating effects of drinking that can make you have bad mornings. Why not have a feel-great morning instead? Buy some at your local liquor store or order online.
6. Pace yourself
We are open from 5 pm to 2 am. If your name is on our calendar for that day, you drink FREE the entire time we are open. You do the math. Slow and steady wins the race.
7. Have fun
That’s it. Just have fun. Enjoy the opportunity to get free drinks all night without having to flirt with anyone to get them!
